Kipling Place in Washington

Host James Gutschmidt says:

Kipling Place is the site of the ghost mining town of Kipling dating back to 1900. The town’s name was inspired by Rudyard’s “The Man Who Would Be King.” In its heyday Kipling’s men who would be kings had established their own Post Office, School House, Mercantile, Grange hall, Church, resident farms and Cemetery. Today the property graces a cabin in the woods, a spacious barn, various camp sites and RV hookup. Its Neighbors include cattle and horse ranchers. The site is nestled within the Kipling valley, and sports a seasonal stream. The surrounding area was once speckled with gold mines, and is still a chosen place for gold prospectors, and dredgers. There are nearby fishing lakes, and wild west towns such as Chesaw, noted for its infamous tavern, 4th of July rodeo and named after a Chinese gold miner of long ago; Oroville, a wild western frontier town of the historical past is presently noted for its art community, be sure to check out the 49th parallel arts window displays; Havilla is known for its picturesque church; and the town of Molson has its illustrious history, museums and Grange hall. The events at the Molson Grange are worth noting and include pancake breakfasts, roller skating, quilt shows, bazaars, ice fishing derby, festivals and romping good times. Not to forget Stizmark ski hill with chair lift just over the hill. In the center of it all is the ghost town of Kipling. Bring your metal detector, or rent one from the host. Be sure to bring hiking boots for treking, or just relax and enjoy the stars or seasonal northern lights. Learn more about the area and events, and read tales at North Okanogan- an Online Magazine.
